I feel really bad that I only got to see this movie on DVD in the end. However I watched it on the gargantuan monstrosity that my Dad calls a TV so it kind of balanced out I suppose. Also I only spotted one of the Cameos-Bonnie owns an adorable plushie of Totoro. Seriously, that thing is so cute I was about to barf sugar.

That it really would :)

I haven't seen Toy Story 3 so i don't know if i'll be exempt from the "It'll make you cry like a three year old with his balls in a vice" rule like i was from Clannad's and Bambi's, but what does get me to cry is pretty fucking obscure.

Toys dreading mortality... that might actually work. Last time i cried was at a movie that didn't have the whole "You'll die inevitably" subtext but the subtext of just how fleeting and chaotic life can really be. One movie, "amores perros," easily my favorite movie, has this one scene that makes me weep like a kid. You see this homeless man, once a teacher turned into a homeless criminal with several dogs, at one point you see these mournful tears come from this psycho when he sees his dogs have been killed, and i just cried right along with him, especially when he spares the wild dog that did kill them. I just love that movie and that scene, and it's not humans or sentient beings dying, it's a bond between man and animal, the only legitimate bond he has left, being torn because of the machinations of some selfish punk that turned a lovable animal into a killer. Damn that gets to me.
...
...oh yeah. This is Toy Story...

I actually am old enough to remember the originals quite vividly. I kind of liked it, but it tried to play to an innocence i never really felt humans or anything human had. I acknowledge it's probably fucking brilliant, i'm just not the kind of guy that can see what it tries to accomplish.

when you said "or in the trash-can", you genuinely sounded upset :P

I must admit i have never been that big of a fan of Toy Story, 1 or 2. Don't think they were bad, there are just a couple of other Pixar films that strike a chord with me (Wall-E, Ratatouille, Finding Nemo, and Monster's Inc being my favorites).

but Toy Story 3 definitely got to me, especially near the end, exactly what Moviebob is talking about. I no doubt think it's because of my age, 24 and while i've already gone past that stage in the story, there are still lingering cherished memories of nastalgia for the old things i used to play with.

When I saw this movie in theaters, I cried at the end.It was the first time I cried watching a movie .But then again when I saw Toy Story 2 as a kid, I cried when I heard the song "When somebody loved me"

I never cried at Bambi, I never cried watching the Lion King. I cried at twenty-freaking-two watching Toy Story 3. Thank you Pixar. That's something to have a cry over, not some cute little animal's parent dying.

I did cry at the end of Old Yeller, but that's because of cosmic injustice.

I know this is a hell of a necro post, but I just want to make a confession.
I cried at the end of this film. This film marked the end of my childhood. I have no shame in admitting that I openly cried in the middle of the cinema. I'm 17, so I was 2 when the first film came out, but that film was one of the first I can remember watching.

Me and my best friend went to see it with his girlfriend. She didn't bat an eyelid, but me and him, we cried and hugged each other in front of the whole theatre. Proof that no relationship can ever match a true bromance.

I showed this to my class today (I teach in China) and despite the fact that they're language learners, they were affected. And as Bob warned, I had to work at maintaining composure.
